Marbella voted most fashionable town in Spain

Los Robles de los Arqueros, Marbella

No wonder that quality new developments in Marbella like Los Robles de los Arqueros, from Taylor Wimpey, remain a perennial hit with holiday-home buyers.

Marbella’s enviable location is a big part of the attraction. The Mediterranean in front and the dramatic charms of Andalucía behind.

Andalucía is Spain’s most southerly region and home to its most traditional experiences including tapas, bullfighting, flamenco and, most notably, the string guitar. It is a land of colour, wonder, great natural beauty and contradiction that has rightfully attracted hoards of holiday makers and property owners to the region year after year.

So there’s no mystery as to why Andalucía enjoys the best brand image of Spain rated 7.9 (out of 10) by journalists, followed by Madrid at 7.3 and Barcelona at 7.1, according to new research of media attitudes by Oak Power Communication (OPC).

And the jewel in the crown ? Marbella: A sleek, sophisticated town voted most fashionable city in Spain (and third trendiest) as well as the best for beaches.

With an undeniable appeal and high profile visitors like Michelle Obama, Marbella is in a class of its own, being one of the most exclusive and sought after areas of Spain.

“We aren’t surprised that Marbella has been voted the most fashionable city and beach haven in Spain,” explains Ignacio Osle, Sales and Marketing Director of leading house builder Taylor Wimpey de España. “ With the Nikki Beach Grand opening White Party back in May attracting thousands of “beautiful people” from all over Europe, and the recent Marbella Luxury Weekend providing the chance for luxury brands to showcase their latest products including a $10m violin, Marbella is definitely the place to be.”

And although luxury villas and apartments are seeing a great deal more enquiries indicating that there is definitely a new type of international buyer in town, more affordable Marbella property is selling equally as fast as buyers look to grab a great deal in a perfect lifestyle location before it’s too late.”

Taylor Wimpey de España has two luxurious residential developments in Marbella, Los Robles de Los Arqueros (phase I pictured top) and La Floresta de la Mairena, both oozing quality and class but without the extravagant price tag.

“Although luxury villas and apartments are seeing a great deal more enquiries indicating that there is definitely a new type of international buyer in town, more affordable Marbella property is selling equally as fast as buyers look to grab a great deal in a perfect lifestyle location before it’s too late,” explains Osle.
